, too, andrea, over the weekend while colin powell was out talking about a defense of hagel for a cabinet post, senator corker was appearing elsewhere and giving a different type of interpretation. take a listen. >> i think another thing, george is going to come up is just his overall temperament. and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the pentagon. >> andrea, has senator corker's office or those around him explained what he was getting at there by the temperament phrasing? >> well, in fact, this has sort of lit up the e-mailing and texting around town here because the pro-hagel group, the people supporting him, former staff members, are asking, you know, what was he talking about because he did not get along well with some of his republican colleagues, he's known to have sort of sharp elbows but he's hardly the only senator who is known to be a little prickly at times. so people really don't understand is this a new -- was senator corker previewing a new line of attack against the hagel nomination where they're going to try to get to his t

hagel for defense secretary nomination might come up. after a week of white house gun violence meetings, it's not clear if the president will seek to reinstate a ban on assault style rifles. even if he does opposition is hardening. >> do you think an assault weapons ban can pass the congress? >> no. >> do you think it should? >> no. >> reporter: west virginia democrat joe manchin, who sounded open to new gun control measures immediately after the newtown massacre now wants a slow moving washington commission. >> if you just want gun bans you're wrong. >> what do we need? >> we need a comprehensive approach. >> reporter: with sales of firearms that congress might ban now sky rocketing, a top senate democrat called for a voluntary moratorium. >> if we continue to see nearly 80,000 gun sales each month in states all over the country, it's going to be counterproductive to whatever solution we will implement. >> reporter: the new york legislature sped towards passage of a tough new assault weapons ban. a move more states may copy as similar efforts stall in

the defense industry, which is not to say that there aren't plenty of democrats whose bread is not being buttered by defense contractors, but if you look down at the breakdown of sequester cuts, defense gets hit with $55 billion in cuts, but they are much more severe, and as dave wood from the huffington post has said, it's like taking a meat clever to the defense industry. the nondefense cuts, 55 billion, same amount, but social security, retirement, veterans medicaid, snap, food stamps and jobless benefits are all exempt, steve. >> i think there's a sort of story here now that's been two years in the making where at some point this is going to have to come to a head. at some point president obama is going to have to call the bluff of the republicans. there were battles over continuing resolutions to fund the government in 2011. there was a summer of 2011 with the debt ceiling. there was the super committee. they were setting up the fiscal cliff. now we've got continuing resolution in march. now we've got the sequester, march 1st. now we've got debt ceiling all over again. one of these

we have already made to priorities other than medicare social security and defense, means that we spend on everything from education to public safety, less as a share of our economy than it has -- than has been true for a generation. and that's not a recipe for growth. so, we've got to do both to stabilize our finances over the longterm but spur more growth in the short term. i have said, i'm opened to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i also said that we need more revenue through tax loopholes. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. turns out that the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate on this issue and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it's fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care. they don't think it's smart to protect endless loopho

likely that an innocent will be killed as opposed to it being used for self-defense and it's just very, very intuitive. people understand that these weapons, assault weapons and high capacity clips, make these kinds of incidents so much more likely to result in massive homicides, and it wouldn't happen with a hammer and it wouldn't happen with a knife. >> but i think that's why we have to call it out for what it is. it's an attempt to deflect us from the real issue. that's all it is. >> it's about denuding what they know would actually in some measure affect this problem and they refuse to do it. >> it's also demonstrably wrong. >> yes. karen finney and julian epstein, as ever, thank you both. >>> next, the new thriller by acclaimed action director john speaker boehner. stay with us. >> so to even entertain the idea of this happening, the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. it's absurd.

of the economy. for example, former defense secretary robert gates has warned the rising -- he has warned of rising military health care costs for years. >> sharply rising health care costs are consuming an ever-larger share of this department. growing from 19 billion in 2001. >> military health care costs have gone up 300% in the past decade. 2012 was the first year since 1995 military personnel saw an increase in health care premiums. now, there are two things republicans love, the military and reducing the deficit. republican should be thrilled with the public option. how can you make a hundred billion dollar mistake? who's doing the math? will it save or won't it save? let's turn to the author of the bill, jan schakowsky of illinois. >> i'm so happy that wendy is doing well. >> thank you. we appreciated your phone calls very much. congresswoman, the math? >> the estimate is it's $104 billion over 10 years. it saves the government money. in terms of the subsidies, in the exchanges, it would be one option that americans could choose. the cost would be 5% to 7% less and it would be an an

with this and the europeans are dealing with this, but our defense secretary called it a terrorist attack and whether we will assist and whether there will be some sort of rescue operation or. >> yeah. >> megyn: whether there already has been one. we talked in the last hour. >> that's right. >> megyn: about the conflicting reports. there was one a lot of people died. there was one, a lot of people got out. where are the americans, are they alive, dead, rescued? do we have answers to the questions? >> i've been reading this up to the minute and we don't have answers to the questions. we don't know if most of the hostages have been killed. in fact, algerian government says they now control the facility and that contradicts reports that they don't because they're holding hostages there. we really, really don't know. and we've got an unarmed drone above, sounds a lot like benghazi, we can watch it, but can't affect it. i would hope that if americans are on the ground, that we would have, are part of building a plan that would try to get them out of there that doesn't involve negotiating with groups linked d

with democrats and rand paul cooperating on some national defense issues, cutting military spending, some spying issues that we care about. you'll see paul ryan making a big show out of not cooperating with democrats but always voting yes as he did for the fiscal cliff deal and as he has in many times previous so it's going to be opportunistic between them, but they haven't sorted it out, this civil war between themselves and so it makes it very difficult for a single figure to rally under the republican mantle. >> ari, to you, to whatever matt is saying and add to whatever you would like to to the conversation here. we saw tea partiers rebel back in 2010 because they did not see the fiscal conservatism that they believe that the republican party should -- should have in its platform. might you see those centrists, those moderate republicans saying, hey, we're going to lead the republican party and start our own, if you will, subgroup because right now the republican party doesn't represent what we want it to be. >> i don't see that kind of splintering, but i would echo things like rubio and pot

with the prime minister, the defense minister, opposition leaders, business leaders and, finally, with president morsi, and all of us pressed our concern, our offense at the things he's alleged to have said a number of years ago. and he responded that he is not someone who harbors hatred or ill feeling towards judism or the jewish people, but the burden is on him to further explain and put in context not just his statements, but also his actions. egypt is a vital partner for the united states, we also discussed critical strategic issues, such as security in the sinai respect for the camp david peace accords with israel and the constructive role that we hope egypt can play in the region going forward, but, obviously, his statements and our grave concerns about them were at the outset of the meeting. the responses were satisfactory enough that we then went on to talk about some of the other vital regional strategic issues. >> now, the white house and the state department have both condemned what he said, so from my own experience, they would not have condemned what the president of egypt said if h

that's not a knee-jerk and neoconservative is going to be secretary of defense and that he's going to be showing a lot more restraint because he remains a realist even when he's in that job and he's around the table talking to the president, giving him the options that he has. >> i mean, i think people who like hagel personally should be pleased. people who like the idea that he's someone who can cut defense spending and is willing to do that and has the credibility to do that should be pleased. but there was also an element of this that was sort of a symbolic early squirmish over military action in iran. that hagel could only take the job by basically reversing himself on this stuff. and also on some of the things about israel. his statement to schumer showed explicit support for israeli civilian casualties in gaza, for bombing civilians in gaza if they need to. that's pretty intense. >> all right. chuck todd, thank you very much. we'll be watching you on "the daily rundown" right after "morning joe." and ben smith, thank you as well. >>> coca-cola doubles down on its pr push to g

think the republicans are hoping that they have a manti te'o defense, that somehow it was all a hoax and maybe the election was a hoax and they can go back and redo everything. no. i think the republican -- the white house strategy is make the house republicans try to do something. and i think that -- and my understanding what house republican leadership wants to do is they have to figure out how to pass -- how to pass a raise in the debt limit at all first. to just put something out there to prove that they can get leverage, right? that was something that boehner tried to do with his whole plan "b" during the tax thing. and when he couldn't do that, then suddenly he lost all leverage. so that's the name of the game number one. and then the second part is what david was talking about there, which is they are trying to figure out how to basically move away from the debt limit as a part of this argument, and that's -- it's easier said than done. they know where they should be having this spending argument, and that is with funding the government. whether they can get the rank and file
